BYOB are an 11-sided polygon of hip-hop and jazz lovers bringing fresh perspectives to the brass ensemble. From pin-drop melancholy to raging party-starters, their communally composed music pays homage to the masters, from Ahmed Jamal and Clifford Brown to MF Doom. Recent radio plays on BBC6 Music and Worldwide FM are building heat for their forthcoming EP, featuring some heavy collaborations from the rawest rappers in the UK.

Forged in the fires of Passing Clouds, BYOB regularly packed out the legendary Dalston venue well into the early hours. Since then BYOB have been whipping up a storm at festivals and venues across the UK and Ireland.

In 2017 they headlined the opening night on the main stage at Glastonbury’s Shangri-la; and for the last four years they have packed out stages at Boomtown, Shambala, Lovebox, Citadel, and the Scala. With their first EP about to drop, this is a live band you can’t afford to miss.
